ULi M1695/1567 Reference
Mainboard Intro 1/4
With the success of the single chipset M1689, ULi introduces a new PCI-E chipset for the AMD Athlon 64/FX processors. This new chipset supports the new Dual Core processors from AMD. It is also the first chipset that uses a tunneling technique to interconnect the two "North Bridges" as the South Bridge M1567 integrates logic for supporting native AGP 8x.
Unlike other existing PCIe-AGP combination solutions that either supports lesser PCI Express lanes (e.g. PCIe x4) or AGP 8X interface running under PCI mode, ULi's M1695 when paired with the ULi M1567 South Bridge, offer simultaneous support for PCI Express x16, and AGP 8X graphics interfaces that makes it possible to connect to multiple monitor displays.
M1695 provides PCI Express link at either the 1
x16 (4 GB/Sec peak bandwidth per direction) or the 2 x8 configurations to
support next-generation high-performance PCI Express 3D graphic controllers.
Coupled with the additional PCI Express link at either 2 x1 or 1 x4 (or x1 or
x2) configuration to support high-speed I/O devices, M1695 offers tremendous
throughput that easily meet the requirements of the most demanding multimedia
applications. The versatility of M1695 enables system manufacturers to build
powerful PC systems with ease and at reasonably low cost.
M1695 is the "King of Dual", being able to support Dual Core Processors and also Dual graphics cards at the same time, one PCI-E and one AGP 8x all in native mode. So how will the AGP 8x Native mode perform against the M1689. How would ULi M1695/M1567 perform against the NF4 Ultra ? Read on.
